  1. How do I use this command if I want to leave components packed on list? I often want to mark all components but during search option they become unpacked. When I pack them again I cannot find them on list fast like I do when I use search option.

    1. You can solve this problem by using different methods as I show on the image.
      1. By using the “Note” command in the PMI Ribbon Bar. Associate Note on the component, so the note will move with a component.
      2. You can change the color of the component in the assembly. Do not assign a color to the solid body. Type Filter should be set as empty or “No Selection Filter”.
